I didn't go up to UW yesterday, while working instead on our Football Friday package. However, TNT sportswriter Ryan Divish did go up, and here is his story on would-be-Husky/former O'Dea/USC safety Taylor Mays.
Remember all that above-and-beyond praise Pete Carroll heaped on Jake Locker earlier this week? UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano matches and raises with his praise of Mays.
Locker and Mays on the field at the same time Saturday will be a fascinating game-within-a-game subplot.
Meanwhile, I really liked the LA Daily News' UCLA coverage last week, and they're doing a nice job this week with USC. Here's the latest on a USC defensive loss, and the Trojans resulting adjustments. And once again, this relates directly to how the Trojans plan to deal with Locker.
